Yeah, I guess "The dose makes the poison" holds true for that as well. Overdosing on vitamin C is mighty hard though.

Tbh I'm thinking the reason for vitamin D and A overdoses is not just their slower elimination: there are high strenght formulations for both and are used quite often.  Multivitamins have so small amounts of the stuff that you'd have to try to OD on purpose.


That being said there were some (inconclusive) studies showing a link between multivitamin use and morbidity. So maybe consider a less trashy diet instead

I have complaining about that for years, why in the name of Sauron does everything have to be online now?????!!!!! Everything is going into accounts, sucriptions and a boatload of shit you cannot believe. And is not even for the top notch stuff, because there is not even topnoch stuff anymore everything has some suker honeypot preorder crap with day one patches sometimes bigger than the original software and that is for the ones that actually care about a day one patch and not like year one or never one.

Now, you have to pay for software that is not finished ON MONTHLY BASIS?!!!! FUCK. THAT.

Being a digital scurvy pegleged individual sure seems luring sometimes.

Thankfully I avoid most of this by:
- Being perpetualy poor like straigth from tv tropes or the sadest cartoon you can watch. So no buying digital ones and zeros for lordbaal.

- The prevuous point in turn prevents me for owning hardware capabe of running anything modern. I think the most recent piece of software (firefox, vcl and other assorted little stuff not withstanding) I have even ran on my old pc was Shogun 2 total war, with extra low setting and still heavy lag.

- I stick to old software like the grumppy old man I have been since my childhood. Office 2007 is my rock. The OS I own are originals from the time I actually could buy two OEM keys on a sale from the company I worked for and they upgraded to windows 10pro almost by themselves. I positively could not afford to buy windows 10 now.

- Lastly the exchange rate control our glorious regimme stablished like 17 years agoo ensures that even if I could, I cannot buy anything overseas unless I have some familiar or something outside with the money to go trough a complicated exchange of money.

What I was saying??? Ah yeah! Keep out of my lawn you online milenials!

My sleep got torpedoed last night.   
Woke up early this morning, at a little before a quarter past four, went and took a leak, drank some cold water, but still I felt uncomfortable. I'm thinking maybe my pyjamas are too hot, I kick off all the blankets, maybe it's a full moon on this weird foggy morning that's making me mildly crazy, I wonder if I've got a very slight, imperceptible headache, all sorts of things, then finally it begins to dawn on me: I gotta take a dump.   
Bit unexpected, since it was rather soon since my last one - I think it may have been the probiotic capsules that were foisted on me yesterday, after me not having taken any in ages (been trying to eat probiotic-rich foods instead). My dookie was pretty weird, too, but that's not the point so I won't go into details.   

Soon enough, I'm back in bed and... well, after some stuffing around on the internet I finally manage to get back to sleep. Cue some very restless sleep, wracked with wacky dreams that I sadly do not remember now, as each dreaming sesh would be rudely interrupted by my alarms going off. Yes, alarms.   
Somehow, I'm pretty sure I snoozed said alarms, then went right back to sleep - dreaming, even! - before being woken again when they finished snoozing. I don't know how that's even possible, pretty sure they snooze for like, five or ten minutes. Then, when I finally woke up once more, the alarm reads '10am' and the time in big letters on my other alarm-phone says 'something past 11'.   
That makes sense, right, since alarms generally show the time they were originally set for, and I'm feeling like I slept in BIG TIME. But then, I look again, and the time on the first phone is actually saying ten. Wait, what? I get up and shuffle over to waken my laptop and check which of them is wrong, and amazingly enough it was in fact just shortly after ten.   

I don't know how tf I managed to wrong-ify the time on one phone to the point that they're an hour apart. It is a pretty derpy friggin' phone, one of those cheap-but-overpriced ones the truly desperate might buy from the checkout at a supermarket. Quite possibly the worst cheap-ass phone I've ever had, with its gigantic icons and ridiculously sensitive buttons. That sensitivity could explain a lot of things, but accidentally changing the time? Whoa.   

So, anyway, looks like the first alarm was actually waking me up an hour earlier than intended. Maybe I didn't actually hit the snooze button after all.   
Though I still thought I woke up more than twice...

Thanfully we dont have any ligthsaving crap here. While we do have some shifthing on the sunrise and set, being so close to the equador means is not really meaningful.

You can actually get windows pretty cheap from (sketchy) third party resalers who just use keys others got from Microsoft for super cheap to stick on machines they are making then resold to a different vendor anonymously when they didn't need them but aren't supposed to resell them. Technically this is illegal for them to do and makes Microsoft sad, but screw them and their monopoly.

Of course some of those copies come from criminals just buying them with stolen credit card data then reselling them, which is kinda a bad thing to be supporting at all.

Either way you can still get a legit copy of windows legally (for you) for under 30 bucks (35 if you get the "don't rip me off its fake and doesn't work guarantee"), which is actually a pretty good price.

Woke up this morning.

Turned to my right.

Stairs are covered in brown piles.

What the hell is this.

Look closer.

My son had gotten up and snuck out early.

He had gone downstairs and pulled every bit of stuffing out of a couch pillow and had some sort of flinging party.

Couch stuffing stretched from the stop of my stairs down through our living room to the kitchen.

Highly amusing. He was made to clean it up, however.

got mine pretty cheap, was a hassle to activate I wouldnt trust it to succeed again, had to forcefully feed it to windows via console IIRC, online advise was borderline directing me to call MS
Yeah, I just called Microsoft like they told me to activate my copy. Took all of about five minutes on the phone with no issues at all after I did all of the prep work (mainly reading the instructions of what to do like 10 times worried that it might not work out or they might say the copy was fake or I might have to get another key).

Sure it was more hassle, but I've had ten times the hassle just trying to get a game loading mods properly in the past, so...

Ohhhhh, shit. You're right.   
Despite the fact that I bought the damn phone in this state, where there is no daylight savings stupidity, and haven't taken it out at all, it was for some reason automatically picking up Sydney time. Apparently those morons set their clocks forward for no reason at this time of year.   
Now not only was I mildly inconvenienced, I'm filled with rage at the stupidity of humankind. Same as I usually am every time this happens. :P

Picked up me trusty phone to check some article on the Wiki. Battery is nearly at full charge. Finished reading a couple minutes later - battery at 13%. Turned off data transfer and closed all aps - the phone kept losing charge until it turned off within seconds. What.
